    Abstract

    This study analyses Ignatius’ practice and understanding of mortification and discernment in his Autobiography. It notes a shift in focus as Ignatius learns to discern - from internal to external, from personal to communal, and from subjectivity to objectivity. It also notes a shift in the focus of his motivation for mortification - from self-hatred to penance to a more discerned and moderate practice of mortification for mission. The study also show the ways in which mortification and discernment became more inter-connected.
